These Air Precleaners consist of a steel housing with static vanes and a rust-proof rotor mounted on dual ball bearings. The perforated metal pre-screen at the inlet is standard. The outlet tube can be adapted with the supplied reducing sleeves for a variety of outlet choices. DUSTBUSTER Engine Air Precleaners are powder coated for a durable, corrosion-resistant finish. Air flows range from 21to 1411 CFM (0.6 to 40.0 m /min). Complete specifications are provided on the previous page.
DUSTBUSTER Engine Air Precleaners are designed to be mounted on or connected to the air filter intake of a gasoline, diesel or compressed gas engine air cleaner. Their applications include all fast-moving mobile equipment such as trucks, buses and recreational vehicles.
HOW THEY WORK
DUSTBUSTER Engine Air Precleaners are usually installed in place of the rain cap, dust bowl, or aspirated precleaner (exhaust system). In some applications, they can be mounted directly to the air cleaner. Air enters the system through a pre-screen that removes large debris. It then flows through static vanes causing the air to spin. As the air spins, centrifugal force separates dust, dirt, insects, rain and snow from the air stream. The swirling air drives a high velocity rotor that acts as a blower evacuating contaminants through special discharge ports in the side of the unit. Only purified air flows to the air filter elements.
